AIA Annual Gala: A Turkish-Themed Affair

  • 25 Apr 2012
  • 7:00 PM
  • 130 Bowery, New York, NY

We invite you to attend the Archaeological Institute of America's annual spring fundraising Gala in New York City on April 25, 2012. The Gala will celebrate all things Turkish, drawing inspiration from Turkey's rich archaeological and cultural past. The event will honor Crawford H. Greenewalt, Jr., longtime excavator at Sardis, with the Bandelier Award for Public Service to Archaeology.

Gala guests will experience a contemporary version of a Lydian feast using the ingredients available to the country's ancient people. The evening's auction will feature unique travel experiences, dazzling jewelry, authentic handicrafts, and private tours with leading archaeologists (among other tempting items and adventures). When the dinner program winds down, the after-party will go into full swing with dancing, authentic music, and a sampling of exotic spirits.
